While on the road early morning Sunday (12 October 2014), combat troops of the Alpha company, 66th Infantry Battalion, Philippine Army, mercilessly killed farmer Rolando Dagansan, 43 years old, and his son Juda, 15, in Tubod, Manurigao, New Bataan town, Compostela Valley. The two Mandaya Lumads came from harvesting corn in their farm in Kabityan and were on their way to their home in Taytayan at 3:00 am when the soldiers attacked them. Their bodies were badly disfigured with so many gunshot wounds; their heads were defaced while Rolando’s arm was amputated.
